The eject motor will be a shiny metallic cylinder around 3/4" in diameter and around 2" long. It will have a white plastic pully with a black rubber belt around the pulley. Try rotating the pulley and belt to manually move the eject mechanism.

Good luck!

Picture jiggles on recorded tapes


this is a tracking problem, often fixable by moving the tracking arrows on the remote back and forth. other times however, when the tapes have been played several times, they just begin to wear out.

How to clean a VCR tape machine.


You just rented a tape and your VCR will not track properly or you tried to record a tape and it would not play back. You have a dirty machine.

Remove the power. Remove the top cabinet by removing all the screws on the back and probably a few on the bottom. Once the top is off look to see where the video tape comes into the machine. Directly ahead of the input is the video drum assembly. It should be about 2 or 3 inches in diameter and be directly in front of the tape slot. It is very fragile and should never have any cleaning device moved up and down on it.

Once you locate the video drum you should saturate a cotton swab with a 100% alcohol solution and while turning the drum slowly with the swab pressed against the video drum you should be able to clean the heads.

The heads are very small and very fragile. Any vertical movement will break them. After cleaning the video heads move to the erase head, CTL head and audio head.

The erase head is located to the left of the tape path entry to the video drum assembly. The CTL head is located with the audio head on the right side of the tape exit from the video drum assembly. Using a swab saturated with alcohol clean all these heads.

You should also clean the tape path and load mechanism ( the tracks that the tape guides slide on). Clean the pinch roller and capstan.

All cleaning supplies such as 100 percent alcohol and lint free cleaning swabs are available at http://www.mcminc.com .

This should complete the cleaning of your VCR. If all went well the unit should now work.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

Panasonic VHS VCR Playback mode Tape Stuttering between LP and SP


This is most because the control head may be dirty, this haed picks up the pulses from the tape to regulate the speed & tracking if this is off it can produce both the faults you describe. Also it is possible the pinch roller (black roller on the right hand side of the deck mechanism, sits just in front of the control head), this may be worn especially as the machine is five years old, this will cause the tape to guided off alignment.

If pictures are rolling during normal playback, just check one thing first. Open the Cassette flap and see the condition of the tape. Is it chewed and stretched at the bottom? If yes, the problem is a worn Capstan / Pinch roller in the VCR. It is cheweing up the lower edge of the tape, and therefore the VCR is not able to process the 'Control Track.
All you need to do is replace the Capstan / Pinch roller.It is a big (approximately 1 inch high by 1/2 inch wide Black Rubber roller inside the VCR. REPLACE. Problem will be solved.

Flicker on playback


Could be tracking, dirty / faulty heads, or mis-alligned guide rollers.

First,adjust the tracking on the player during playback. This is done by pressing P+ or P- on the remote control.

If this doesn't work, use a video head cleaner. This consists of a video cassette and fluid. Follow the instructions with the cleaner.

If this still doesn't help, and you are confident in opening up the VR550, you could cleaner the heads manually.

Disconnect from the mains.

Remove the screws from the back and sides of the VCR.
Gently ease the lid off the machine.
Locate the large silver coloured head drum towards the back of the machine. There are four small receptors around the side of the drum. These are the video heads.
Take a small piece of clean white paper about 1.5 inches square. (Copier paper)
Hold the paper square over 1 finger and rub each head in turn. Keep the head near the centre of the paper so as not to catch the heads with the edges of the paper.
Check the paper for dirt from the heads.
Reconnect the player and try a tape. If the problem is still there, try cleaning again.

If none of this works, insert a tape NOT recorded on this machine (Mis-alligned rollers affect recording as well as playback) and play. Locate the rollers which guide the tape around the mechanism. Particulary either side of the head drum.

The rollers have adjustments on the top, which can be turned to move the guide up and down slightly. This is a fiddly job, and over adjustment could cause the tape edge to be damaged.
Adjust the rollers to get a clear picture. It is mainly trial and error.


If all fails then the video is probably destined for the skip.

If you need a replacement, www.cheapestelectrical.co.uk , will sell you a VR550 at a very good price.

I'm guessing the "black thing in side" is referring to the actual tape itself- ribbon like which can be spooled out of the tape case. If so, then your VCR may have a mechanical problem of some sort, which results in a "no tape transport" or "no tape takeup" problem. If the latter, the right reel (takeup reel) is not being driven. Older VCRs often used a small rubber rimmed drive mechanism to drive this reel. Newer VCRs (10 years old or less) pretty much use a gear drive. Something may be broken here, or perhaps the gear is stuck. This gear assembly has to swivel back and forth, from left for rewind, to right for takeup or fast-forward. Unfortunately, you can't see the gear once the tape is in the machine, at least not from the topside. Suggestion: Take the top cover of VCR off, look for this gear, and see if it swivels freely, look for broken gear teeth.

Tapes keep getting stuck


If your tapes are getting stuck, then most likly it is not a cleaning issue, but a mechanical problem. It would be something in the take up supply reel mechanism. Like a bad clutch, take-up gear or idler, and /or a bad or broken belt.

Tape is stuck in VCR- Fast rewind and forward


It may need to be cleaned. Mechanical problems are one of the big problems with VCRs they use alot of mechanical moving parts and play for so long they fail. Plastic parts dont help much either. The pinch roller takes up the slack and is usualy the part that fails first because it constantly runs along the tape and builds a coating on the rubber so it doesnt grip the tape and pull it back into the cassette. If its not pulling the tape back in then it hangs up inside and you cant get the tape out. Fastforward uses the reels to pull the tape not so much the roller. Try and stop 2 times then fast forward then eject the tape. Try and eject the tape while its fastforwarding so it doesnt do anything else. Sometimes machines will unload after its been in fastforwad a while then it will eject. You will hear a change in the sound when it unloads, you can hear the mechanical arms move the tape in and out of the cassette. Thats when you eject it. You cant really clean it till you get the tape out. YOu can clean the pinch roller with fingernail polish or paint remover. It is a wheel inside it looks like a black tire. It pinches the tape against the capstan arm this is why it developes a film or a shine on the rubber making it slip.
